I have been a blogging slacker of late. I know I have! Here are some short updates:
We are in the home stretch before school starts. He is supposed to be taking the bus again this year after a two years hiatus. This is something he is very excited about. I have been in negotiations with the district about how some of this will look. The bus has always been the most frustrating part of his schedule. I don't understand how I can get everything else set up to perfection and a bus can continuously get in my (and many others) way. But it is the case and here I am waiting for information. Frustrating. I don't really feel that I can say any more than that, so it will just have to stay with that amount of information. . .
I was sitting next to Daniel at Devos Hall in Grand Rapids, watching a High School Musical production. He loves these live shows! At one point he put his arms up and I almost passed out. When did he get smelly? Wow. I texted my husband (who was at his parents house) "D needs deoderant, fast." Luckily his is obsessed with showering and does so daily. I have to keep telling him to stop washing his feet. Everytime he goes outside he comes in and washes them. I have "mentioned" a few times that showering before bed and washing them then is sufficient, unless you are walking in mud for some reason?
Michigan summer has, well, not to sound repetitive, stunk. It has been cold, wet and depressing. This last weekend has finally decided to be high 70's and clear skies. We will hopefully get in some last outdoor swimming.
We have been shopping for clothes. He is in the top size of his favorite pants, 20 husky. What next? I should have pushed the button thing earlier....
I need to work on my resume this weekend. More on this later. How is that for a teaser?
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!
